September 26th Section Social - The Trek to K2 Base Camp
Gasherbrum, Masherbrum, Muztagh, Trango. The sights were so jaw dropping that we had to stop every 5 minutes to turn around and be amazed by a rapidly changing and totally spectacular view. This July, 13 intrepid souls from the Rocky Mountain section trekked up the Baltoro Glacier in Pakistan to Concordia and the K2 base camp. Come to this presentation by Steve Fedyna & his K2 crew to hear how we survived Pakistan International Airlines, were blown away by the friendliness of the people in Islamabad and participated in an impromptu dance party at a high altitude lake above Skardu. There were +40C days and sand dunes on the glacier, and over a vertical km of fixed lines on the Gondogoro La pass. Pictures, stories and more - 7:30 p.m., Thursday September 26. Location: projection room, Origins at Spring Creek. Enter through the Mine Shaft Tavern - 808 Spring Creek Drive in Canmore. If you plan to have dinner prior to the show, please make a reservation at the Mine Shaft by calling (403) 675-0111. This event is free and open to everybody.
